Family heirlooms from relatives

My 90 year old grandmother recently sent me a box of family heirlooms. We live 3000 apart and I will probably never see her again. I appreciate the effort and expense it took for her to give me these heirlooms, but I'm not sure what to do with them. Items included: my grandfather's John Wayne VHS collection, silver-plate silverware and salt and pepper set, a silver-plate brush and comb set, and a broken clock with no glass face and lots of missing parts. I appreciate the gesture and I sent her a card of gratitude. However, I don't have any real connection to these items and I don't even recall my grandparents owning most of this stuff. Would I be an awful grandson to get rid of it all? I don't have family to offer it to. I'm her only grandchild and my parents are gone.
