A few words about YORKTOWN


Shore is a nod to the “other” coast, with it’s boardwalks and seasonal changes. Shelter is all about one’s dwelling, our house, our digs, the roof over our head. Sanctuary is our most sacred place…our retreat, our haven, and whether at home or the beach, with family and friends or simply alone, it is that treasured space where we feel blissful, happy, grounded, safe and secure.

Yorktown features a marvelous collection of home interior goods, decor, gifts, found objects, lighting, gifts and an emphasis on local artisans near and far.

Home Interiors & Gifts

In May 2000, Tabula Rasa Essentials filled a niche in downtown Manhattan Beach as a lifestyle gift shop. Seeking a new path after 20 years as an executive in the fashion industry, the meaning of Tabula Rasa struck a cord with Maureen – “blank slate”, “new beginnings”, “new ideas”. Tapping into her vast merchandising and marketing experience, she focused on capturing emerging trends in home goods and new artisans from around the world and combined those findings with classic gifting – creating a unique shopping experience in our southern California community that continues to thrill and delight!

Fifteen years later, Maureen and her team are excited to announce the opening of YORKTOWN. While Tabula Rasa Essentials launched a new career and a new beginning for Maureen personally, YORKTOWN now encapsulates all of her beginnings…from the place where she grew up on the east coast to the global influences she absorbed from traveling the world and immersing herself in cultures near and far.
