Eco-beauty brand Skinnyskinny, which has been producing organic soaps, lip balms, and buckwheat pillows in Williamsburg since 2005, will open its first store this Thursday. The line is currently carried at places like ABC Carpet & Home, so you know it's not kidding around. The boutique, at Roebling and N.4th Streets, will be as green as the products it carries: It's built from reclaimed wood and powered by renewable energy. It also happens to sit next to Skinnyskinny's workshop, which we can't help but imagine as a sort of Keebler tree in which wee hippie elves stir vats of bath oils.
