I purchased this Historic Building 14 years ago. It's the former William Randolph Hearst Printing Plant where the SF Examiner was printed in the late 1920's. As a Graphic Designer/Producer, I have been collecting Millions of Advertising Items for over 48 years. Our top floors are rented daily to Artists, Makers and others for Meeting&Events. We sell this material to collectors around the world and love it's rarity and beauty. Most people think it's a Museum, but with nearly everything for sale, people can buy awesome gifts from $2 to as much as $20,000 There is nothing quite like The Box SF!

Where you'll be

Each of the floors of this unique and historic building are amazing! Everyone of the rooms and floors are furnished with various antiques and our private Wine Cellar and Speakeasy is a unique experience due to the way you enter the room! Our top floor boasts the largest and oldest dining and meeting table in the United States and is made from 335 year old Village Gate Doors from China. Our Mercantile contains rare items from around the world!
