"I am a flea-market junkie and have been collecting old trunks and crates for years," Gretchen says. "They come in handy at events like this. I stack them in various configurations and use them to hold party items and add some visual interest. For this party, I also used a couple of vintage magic tricks and props I picked up recently from the flea market. I tried to create the feeling that we were backstage at one of Kellar's or Houdini's magic shows looking through their magic props."
