Using nostalgic items

One of the things I inherited from my mother was a huge set of pencils that she had collected from the various New York City Bridge clubs where she played. I've been using them and my dilemma is that they are getting used up because of sharpening. And I occasionally wonder if I should save them.



The Manhattan Bridge club (which has since merged and moved) is the place where I held my mother's memorial service. The Cavendish Club is a very famous club that I see has closed. My father used to play there a lot in the '50s.

Unheard Of in Bridge: Cavendish Club Folds

By JOHN TIERNEY
Published: June 2, 1991
The world's most illustrious bridge club played its last hand late Friday night -- five clubs bid and made, as quickly and unceremoniously as ever. Then the members left their green felt tables on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and 10 minutes later, at midnight, the Cavendish Club was officially defunct.

Use them, enjoy them. Think of Mom when you do.

Keep them! They're cool as a collection.

I'd be so tempted to put them into a shadowbox. What a wonderful set. I love their varying degrees of used and gnarledness (gnarlation?).
