OUR MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY
Women Owned & Operated Small Business
SWATTY CREEK MILL
Welcome to Swatty Creek Mill. I’m Tiffany, the responsible party. I’ve set out to build a brand that is not only a shop, but a shopping experience. An experience that is both convenient and honest, with all of the “feels” of a hometown shop.
Founded in only 2019, Swatty Creek Mill has undoubtedly come a long way! When I began this adventure, I was inspired by our mill located on the Swatara Creek (aka the “Swatty”); buying and selling vintage/antique items that quickly transformed into our Online Shop by the end of 2019 and a Storefront to call home in 2020.
I hope you enjoy our products as much as I enjoy offering them! I want you to be completely satisfied with every purchase and have that hometown experience when you’re visiting us in-person or online. During your time with Swatty Creek Mill, if you find that your experience is anything less than exceptional, I ask that you please contact me right away.

Curious about Hummelstown? There’s surely a lot of history to uncover in this 1762 town, formerly known as “Frederickstown”.
The Swatty Creek Mill storefront is an 1,100 sq. ft., 1700s home, consisting of five rooms.
This former home built in 1795, began operating in 1905 as a Drug Store by Mr. Kilmer and Mr. Ruff. In 1935 the property transferred to the Albert Imoden Residence and Carriage House; 1935-1972, The Albert Imoden Store; 1973-1996, Early’s Flower Shop; 1996-2001, The Tarman Book Store; 2001-2019 The Hummelstown Historical Society; and 2020-Present, Swatty Creek Mill.
The "Swatty" Creek
Why is the Swatty particularly significant? Because those of us that are local, have grown-up with the Swatara Creek being part of our lives. Whether that’s tubing, kayaking, catching rays or even crayfish, we all have some pretty great memories of the Swatara Creek with our closest family and friends.
Let’s further the conversation! We want you to be involved and have a great time. Not specific to any one topic or theme, we provide several channels to keep you informed on our casual chic boutique, the latest styles, trends, DIY and of course, a little bit of fun!
