Giant Dwarf's Sue Eggen is quitting while she's ahead. In a bold move, the winner of our Coolest Philly Artisan 2013 Racked Award is retiring her line of glass-glittered hair accessories—the very same ones that put her on the map—for good. "The starry designs have been far more successful than I could have ever hoped for and still are to this day," she writes on her website. "For this reason, I've decided to retire the line while still on top and go out with a bang." Giant Dwarf's here to stay, however; the designer has new creations up her sleeve for 2014.
Before Giant Dwarf's sparkly hair pins and crowns are sent to the vault on February 1, Eggen is offering 30% off and free shipping on the entire collection with code STARBURST. Translation: You have until Friday, January 31, to snag one of these handcrafted beauties before they're gone for good. Treat yo'self (or a special someone) for Valentine's Day.
