80 year old chimney bricks

I recently had a contractor remove the top portion of my chimney and fill the hole with an attic fan. it works great.

I am in the process of demolishing the rest of the chimney and will have about 600 bricks when Im done. They look handmade as they are rather large and very uneven.

Are these worth anything to restoration pros or should I just build something with them?

The chimney goes thru the house and it will free up 2sq feet per floor. in the attic it was at the top of the stairs which made moving ANYTHING up there difficult. on the second floor it was in the 5x8 bathroom (room looks huge now) one the first floor it goes thru the kitchen so new cabinets and a stove are out of the picture until I get rid of it.
