Small books restock arrived today. The large Autumn / Xmas shipment from the UK will be arriving next week. Because it is such a large delivery, the shop will have to close on the day that it arrives. As soon as I have word that it has shipped and have a delivery day, I will update. It could happen any day next week, but will hopefully be in the first half of the week. Thanks in advance for your understanding :D There are a lot of new items, so plenty to look forward to! Have a great weekend!
Hope everyone has had a great start into September. I am swamped with placing Fall orders, preparing the dungeon of doom for the arrival of Xmas goodies and for the Fall shipment from the US (in October). If you are waiting on an e-mail reply from me, expect that this weekend. I do have a request: if you have things put aside with me, please pick them up by next Friday (Sept. 12th). Anything not picked up by that time will be re-stocked. Space is tight and with several thousand kilograms of goods on the way, I need every mm I can get :D Happy weekend, enjoy the return of summer ;)
Congratulations to all of the little ones celebrating their "Zuckertütenfest" (and their parents) today. Wishing you all a day of joy and magic and a smooth start into this new chapter.
My apologies! I received an emergency phone call from my children's summer care that my youngest needed to be picked up immediately for health reasons at 5pm. I will remain closed for the evening now, as I need to tend to him. Very sorry for not giving you all a head's up. I will be open again tomorrow from 12-6pm and Saturday from 11am-3pm (last days of summer hours) and normal hours starting on Monday. Again, my apologies and hope to see you soon!
General re-stock from the UK arrived today, so all of the classics should be available again. I also have sausage rolls, pasties and thick pork sausages in the fridge :) Summer hours are still valid (Mo-Fr 12-6pm, Sa 11am-3pm).
I am baaa-aaack ;*} and busy re-ordering and generally catching up on paperwork and the like. Hope you are all having a great summer -- the next time we have an end-of-the-world-is-nigh-style shower like we did a bit ago, go out into the streets and dance your hearts out.
Quick reminder that Summer hours start tomorrow: Mo-Fr 12-6pm Sa 11am-3pm Thanks and see you soon!
Alrighty, frozen foods from the UK are in the freezers -- barely, thank you tetris for the skills you have taught me ;) Crumpets are restocked, as are the vegan Linda McCartney veg. pies and Quorn sausages. NEW: Linda McC. vegan sausages, Quorn Chicken style nuggets, Quorn Burgers, Warburton's Tear & Toast Muffins, Irn Bru Ice Cream lollies (yeeeeesssss, you read that right), R. White Lemonade lollies, Bird's Eye Chicken Pies (singles), Aunt Bessie's Homestyle Oven Chips. As long as we are on the topic of chips: I was sent a case of 15 packages of McCain's Chips that I did not order and for which I don't haven even a mm of space to put them to sell. As long as I have them, they are FREE FREE FREE with any purchase (whether 1€ or 20€)! So come in quickly before they melt ;)
Quick update on the state of things here :) I am in the process of placing my Fall US order this week (don't expect it before September, though ;) ) I am trying to re-order frozen foods this week (crumpets and vegan pies, as well as Irn Bru Ice Cream). The shop will close at 6pm this Thursday, July 10th and at 3pm on Saturday, July 12th. Opening times next week Mo-Fr should be normal (11-7), but the shop will close at 3pm on Saturday, July 19th. Starting July 21st, the shop will move to summer hours through the end of August: Mo-Fr 12-6pm Sa 11am-3pm Pre-orders for the next UK order will be taken until July 15th, delivery will be mid August. I will be on holiday from July 19th-August 4th, so be nice to Elina in my absence :) Messages and emails will be read and returned when I get back as I will be unreachable. :)
Who are you cheering for this evening? We are a house divided, for sure. My in-laws can't decide where to put their loyalty -- in Germany or in Klinsmann (they used to buy pretzels from the Klinsmann family bakery, true story!). Use the code-word *Klinsi* for 10% off American beer today :)
Summer is here and it is time to start planning your holiday literature and activity books! I have just restocked, so bring your littles with you and chose from a great selection of activity books, craft sets and books. There should be no reason to utter that dreadful phrase "I'm bored" ;*}
So nobody thinks I am just kicking back with my feet up watching the rain... I just submitted the UK Christmas 2014 order :P
I will be opening a little later today (11:30am at the very latest) as I need to take care of something at a place that doesn't open until 11am :) Ahhhh, Neustadt problems, eh? Thank you for understanding!
BRN, day 2: I will be open until the normal 4pm, anything after that is unsure at the moment. There are still some cookies and vegan banana bread left over from yesterday :D Some time after 1pm (as soon as my husband gets our kids fed and can get here), we will have fluffy American pancakes and root beer floats available! Please remember that BRN has a glass bottle ban that goes into effect early afternoon today. If you NEED something in a bottle, make sure you get here before 1pm. After that, you can purchase drinks in glass bottles, but I have to pour them into plastic cups before you leave the shop premises. That said, I do have a large selection of English Cider and both US and UK beer in cans available :D Hope to see you soon!
Ashlee Gray, you are the winner of the gift certificate :D You can pick it up / use it anytime from tomorrow onwards (I am not in the shop today, sorry). Congratulations!
Alrighty, folks! The Super Bowl XLIX is this weekend. I have snacky stuff, *ausnahmsweise* Coors Light, craft brews, soft drinks, Solo Cups (beer pong, baby), etc. etc. in the shop. :) To make it interesting, how about a contest? The first person to post what ends up being closest to the final score will win a Gift Certificate for the shop. Edited entries and entries made after kick-off will automatically be disqualified (*whipcrack*). GO!
The first delivery of the year from the UK arrived yesterday with a fresh stock of cheese and hummus (unfortunately, the bacon was sold out -- yikes!). I am also restocked on Walker's Crisps, Beanz of several varieties, Dorset Mueslis, Cadbury, etc. Funnily enough, I was also able to order a few orginal American products this go round and have some items in stock a number of you have been begging for ;) Peanut Butter M&Ms, A&W Root Beer, Butterfinger are in stock.
Happy New Year! I hope you have all made it safely, happily and healthily into 2015. Have a great year, be kind to yourselves and others.
Wishing everyone a few days of peace and joy with family and friends!

DingaDingaDingDing I received a shipment from the UK yesterday with chilled products, small company specialities and health foods. Some highlights include: Gammon, Cocktail Sausages, Wallace & Gromit Cheese, Mince Pie Wensleydale for the fridges. From Fentiman's I received the new Elderflower drink and their new Herbal Tonic; fudge is back in stock (phew!), as well as a few specialty chocolates perfect as stocking stuffers or that *little extra* in the holiday season. Tea has also been restocked with a few new varieties of Pukka adding to the bunch. Oh, and marshmallows! Mini marshmallows, vegan mini marshmallows and artisan peppermint and chocolate marshmallows.
Did I mention I baked pumpkin bread as a special treat for today? ;)
I received the November shipment from the UK and am now restocked on bacon, cheese, hummus, Walker's crisps, Beanz in many varieties, several new Cadbury bars, etc.
