Happy One Year Anniversary to All Beta!

2012 Recap on All Beta

I created the Etsy shop account name on December 3rd, 2011.  I'm late on announcing the celebration but I like to think of December as the anniversary month.  Thank you to all my wonderful Etsy customers, climbing and sailing enthusiast, friends, and family!  I could not have done it without you.

First person I have to thank is a climber from Mission Cliffs San Francisco, DocPop (Etsy alias name), for posting my Chinese Take Out Chalk Bag on  It landed my shop over a thousand views very early on, followed by many custom chalk bag request.  Thank you Rohan Balakrishnan for keeping it interesting for me by requesting Game of Thrones, Zelda, and Nyan Cat designs.  All of which were made successfully and these were just a few of his ideas.

The top selling chalk bag of the year is the Great White Shark Attack Chalk Bag. I sold 32.  Many sold during Shark Week.  Thank you Discovery Channel!  Other successful creature chalk bags from 2012 are Fox, Piranha, Whale, Fox Tail, Dino Tail, and AHH screaming monsters!

Thank you Etsy Climbers and leaders for promoting All Beta on Pinterest, Facebook, and their new blog.  It is very nice to know there is a small climbing community on Etsy willing and able to help.  Thanks for keeping it real.

Thank you to customers who supported All Beta rope bracelets.  Majority of All Beta transactions are in fact jewelry.  Without the jewelry market, I would have probably stopped sewing chalk bags a long time ago.  Now that I'm getting into sailing, nautical rope jewelry and designs will definitely continue to emerge.

I really enjoy what I do and hope to continue this in 2013 full time.  Expect new and exciting products for the upcoming year!
