anyone keep Canadian memorabilia?

and what's the oddest thing you've kept/pilfered?

I was digging through my files at work and came across my travel expenses folder from about 5 years ago. In it was a pack of u/g stickers - funny how you could use those stickers on just about ANY fare back then!

I also found a wooden mini-toothbrush with the Canadian chevron burned in the handle. weird stuff I accumulate.

I still carry my last 3 years' CdnGold bag tags on my carry-on!

In YYC a couple of weeks ago I was browsing through the aviation souvenir store and they still have model airplanes for sale with the Canadian colours!

I just remembered that I sadly left a set of the old Executive Class socks I was given years ago on a red-eye YEG-YYZ on a flight on AC a few weeks ago!

I have some of the 'Proud Wings' Parker pens, luggage tags, ticket jackets. I also have a big stack of the in-flight magazines, lots of promotional materials, one of the blue blankets, old timetables, a tray table (kidding), a safety card (I didn't take it myself) and some fond memories.

Salt and Pepper shakers, kept in the car for when fast food beckons.

An old timetable.

My EP & Gold tags still on my carry-on.

since Canadian Airlines was acquired by Air Canada in a take-over in 1999, the shares weren't technically, worthless.

near worthless though... certainly not worth tha cost of getting paper printed! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif

Tons of those J class amenity kits [I must at least 30 of them. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif]. Lots of menus. 747, 767 & DC-10 model planes sitting on my desk back in YYZ. Collections of FF cards as well.

No upgrade stickers left for me as I mailed them all back for points towards the end of CPlus.
