Aside from shaking hands with the Queen on Canada Day ("What the fuck!" is what she says to that, but in an excited way), local singer-songwriter Christina Martin has been working with artist Tacha Reed to create fun items for her fans. "I thought it would be fun to work with a local artist to create a unique line for people," Martin writes, adding that she named the line Pretty Things after her first album. "I've seen some great ideas that other artists have had for merchandise on the road, and I looked at this as another opportunity to have fun with my work!" Crafted items such as cuffs, scarves, feather jewels and single feather earrings are among the new loot, all for sale at Love, Me Boutique---where Martin will launch her line with an in-store show Saturday at noon. The money raised on her side of things won't stay with Martin---her proceeds will go to the Canadian Mental Health Association's social programs in both Halifax and Dartmouth, an association Martin keeps close to heart as a former volunteer. You can also keep an eye out for Martin's new album, I Can Too, out in August, which the entrepreneur lady will kick off by touring with Cuff the Duke.
