• We’re still Skinny . . . but so much BIGGER!

    In 2011, I opened a shop at 201 Bree St. You may already know the tale, but if not, and you’re up for a history lesson, read more here. That narrow little shop has served us very well, but six years later, Bree St has grown up a lot, and so has Skinny laMinx, so it’s …
