It’s funny… when people come into our store at The Pressroom and Mercantile at they think I must spend every penny I make on my inventory. Truth be known. I have spent very little in the last 15 years. Most of my inventory is comprised of my personal collections that I started when I was 7 years old that were in storage. The money I have made in the last 14 years has only really comes from producing events for and some as a graphics designer at my firm . The store and letterpress shop makes very little money, but is indeed my personal passion, and making it in 2017 was an accident, and to save the building due to a zoning issue. Since we opened on April 1, 2018 it has been one of the great joys of my career and my most important creative endeavour! Losing it, just because I cannot find a new mortgage is one of the 4 great heartaches in my life! I cannot express how grateful I am to every single person who visits us daily, or who has supported us! THANK YOU IS NOT ENOUGH! ~Mark E. Sackett TheBoxSF.com

I reflect today on World AIDS Day and remember every single Friend I have lost to AIDS/HIV over the years! This has been a life long battle for so many in the Creative Community in particular in which I have worked in for decades. In 1988 when I moved to San Francisco it was less than a year that I watched my coworker and James enter the Hospital and suffer in ways you could not imagine. The fear, paranoia and misinformation was rampant. It seems that everyday I heard of another colleague, friend, or acquaintance who was suffering. I remember going to visit James in the Hospital and people saying you better be careful, why would you expose yourself to that? And more! And I wanted him to know he was loved, I knew he did not have much time left. And we lost him days later. James loved everything Chocolate. So, knowing he was going to die, he planned a Chocolate Party at his apartment after his death for all of his friends, with mountains of Chocolate Truffles and Bowls made of Chocolate from Joseph Schmidt Chocolates, (his favorite place)! The walls were covered with pictures of James throughout his life. It was a beautiful last act of love from James to us all. I could go on all night with more stories of friends I’ve lost. I miss you all! 🙏🏼♥️🙏🏼
