We’re always adding shedloads of awesome new stuff to the site but here’s a few of our favourites from this week….

With only 25 days to go to THE BIG DAY, we’re starting to get pretty excited about the impending Royal Wedding and our new fit for a Princess, Little Miss tee is the perfect way to welcome the celebrations. With sparkly blue jewels on her golden crown, Little Miss Princess is the latest addition to the classic series of children’s stories, created by Adam Hargreaves in time for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

If TruffleShuffle did cameras………

Oh wait, we do! This is no ordinary bit of kit though. Built completely from LEGO bricks, it can’t be taken apart but bricks can be added to the top or bottom of the camera so you can dig out your old toy box and start putting those boxes of lego back into use. Perfect for us grown ups who can still smell those little plastics bricks as if we were ten years old, kids will obviously love it too making it perfect for their first foray into the world of photography. Let’s be clear, this is no toy though; it’s a full functioning 3 Megapixel digital camera, featuring a color 1.5” LCD screen.  It takes high quality photos with the built-in flash, fixed focus and digital zoom and  holds up to 80 photos at a time. Prepare for the nods of approval when you get this out and start snapping away…..

Lego Digital Camera £69.99

If your man ‘has the power,’  looks great in red and is the master of your universe, our excusive My Boyfriend is A Real He-Man T-Shirt from Fame and Fortune is an essential buy. Inspired by our very own Prince of Eternia AKA He-Man, this gorgeous fitted grey tee brings memories of a legendary 80’s hero in true TruffleShuffle style.

Buyers, Breakfast, Berlin and Bread & Butter – An Inspired Trip

Last Thursday, alarm clocks set at 3am (yes, that’s right) us TruffleShuffle buyers, hazily awoke from our slumbers and prepared ourselves for a long day of trade show fun. The destination, Bread & Butter in Berlin. This is where we head for a bi-annual buying trip, a place to meet up with existing suppliers for a chin-wag and view of the new collections for 2011. It’s also a fab opportunity to source new ranges and expand our current supplier base as we are always super keen to introduce new exciting brands and product to the site.

Yummy pancakes with honeycomb butter and caramel drizzle. Ahhhh dreamy...

Upon arriving at Heathrow, the first thing on our minds was BREKKIE! We needed some serious fuel for the day ahead and some kind of a feast to keep us awake and perky! After checking in, we swiftly made our way to Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food restaurant and one Eggs Norwegian, one full English, one Pancakes with banana, two apple juices and two coffees later we were ready to go!

High up in the sky

Taking off at 7.05am, we flew high above the clouds and took in the most stunning sun rise; some more coffees and a little nap later, we had arrived! Set in the amazing old Tempelhof airport, Bread & Butter attracts buyers from all over the world and is a showcase for major brands such as Replay and Superdry as well as smaller up and coming brands.

What an amazing setting! With all the original airport signs, baggage conveyor belt, check in desks and design details still intact, we even had to show our passports upon entering along with our boarding pass style entrance tickets. It is a very slick operation, and a really fantastic show. Zig-zagging our way through the numerous stands, we caught up with some of our favourite suppliers including, Chunk, Amplified, Coloud, Chaser LA and Junk Food. We were buzzing with excitement at the new ranges, there are some real treats in store for you this year!
