      In “Igbo-Igala Borderland” written by Austin J. Shelton, it is said that M.D.W. Jeffry collected several of Umueri tales. A version tells of God having sent to Earth Eri and his wife Namaku who had several children including Nri. Emigrating Igalas in the historical book "Igbo- Igala borderland" were completely Igbonized over a few decades. Today, the Attamas, Attahs, Obettas, Asogwas and other Igala surnames are vociferously Igbo, although they are descended from Igala priests.

As the store name implies, my last name is Shelton and I'm selling my old stuff. (I'm also a bit old myself, but that's besides the point.) My husband has collected comics and signed first edition books since he was in high school and I've been collecting toys and lots of other stuff all my life. Living this long, we've also acquired a lot of what some would consider tech waste but much of it.
