Why Are We a Good Fit for Your Creative Business?

Because we truly care. We believe that shopping small, from independent brands, strengthens communities and encourages originality, diversity, and connection. We feel good making purchases that support artists and independent business owners (and their families) with empowering, self-directed work. There’s a different way to shop, and it encourages humanity!

What Makes Aeolidia Special?


No one has the track record we do with the types of brands we work with. We're the agency that gets big results for small businesses. We understand what works for independent designers (it’s not always what you’d think).

We create community and learning opportunities, and help forge one-on-one and group connections that grow businesses through our Facebook and mastermind groups. We have provided free consultations, training, and services throughout our career.

We’re your people. Our team of ecommerce experts are also soapmakers, block printers, toy designers, and knitters who have run shops ourselves and shopped from yours. We’re big fans of your business, and will cheer you on as you grow it.

Our core values make us a delight to work with. We are diligent achievers, curious learners, humble experts, positive allies, and creative supporters. Read about our values in detail here.

Giving Back

We believe that everyone should have the resources needed to find a fulfilling career. We believe that art and design businesses strengthen our communities and uplift our spirits. These are some of the organizations we are proud to support:

We're Black owned, woman owned, and have 100% female leadership. Diversity isn’t just a value for us, it’s literally who we are as people, how we live and exist in the world and in our bodies. We believe our variety of backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences to be critical to our success.
