Meet Tamela Hampton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tamela Hampton.

Tamela, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
In 1998, I started a part-time retail job with Dillard’s. I soon left my administrative assistant job and went full-time @ Dillard’s. I was manager @ Pebbles Dept. Store, Kirkland’s and Goody’s. Then in 2008, I opened my business only selling Sterling Silver Jewelry. As years went by my customers asked me to carry Fashion Jewelry & Handbags. Then they wanted Clothing. Hampton Creek was becoming the store I had always wanted. Hampton Creek was located in Tullahoma, TN until Nov. 2021.

In 2017, Tullahoma Chamber of Commerce voted us Small Business of the Year. Hampton Creek was Voted Tullahoma’s Finest Boutique 2021. In the Spring of 2021, my son invited me to Make the Move to Colorado. I accepted!

I started looking Jan. 2022 for a New Location to Re-Open Hampton Creek. I found a great location in March 2022. We opened April 29, 2022 on 8450 E. Iliff Ave. Denver, CO 80231. Hampton Creek Store Hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Closed Sundays & Mondays. We hope to see you soon!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Although the journey to get where we are today has had “It’s Moments,” the reward of my continued success has been well worth it.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a small independent business owner. My business specializes in Ladies Apparel, Sterling Silver Jewelry and Home Goods. We are known for our unique displays, one-of-a-kind floral arrangements, as well as our stellar customer service.

I am most proud of running a successful business since 2008. My ability to “Never meet a Stranger” and make everyone feel Welcome @ Hampton Creek.

What makes you happy?
What makes me happy?… I have many things that make me happy. First would be my son Chris, I enjoy spending time with and discovering new venues and locations of Colorado. Second would be my fur baby Macy, she comes to Hampton Creek with me daily. I also love riding my Heritage Classic Harley Davidson, which I named LUNA. Nature & Hiking is another of my favorites.
