My name is Khaliah Noel-Gibson
I am the founder and proprietor of The Renterie marketplace. I’m a married mom of two, and a native New Jerseyan. I’m also a full-time children’s party planner, which I’ve been lucky enough to be doing for the past 6 years.
In my previous life, I worked at a Fortune 100 company in Marketing for 12 year. After that ended, I vowed to make my business full-time and to never return to the 9-5 grind. Now I happily take on the 24-hour grind of motherhood and entrepreneurship! My business The Party Muse, coupled with my love of finding “that one thing” which gets my party gears turning, is what inspired me to start The Renterie.
I, like a lot of you, love to treasure hunt for parties. As a planner you’re expected to have specialty supplies and while that’s true since we have such a keen eye, sometimes the price tag comes at a cost too great to provide. Or, while it’s PERFECT for a pirate party, for whatever reason you just don’t want to keep the guillotine – YIKES.
The Renterie was born out of that space. It’s for planners, it’s for stagers, it’s for stylists, it’s for interior designers, it’s for DIY’ers, it’s for any person who wants to throw one great party themselves, it’s for everyone. I am a champion of women business owners and small businesses in general. I’m a small business owner, and even though I have great plans for The Renterie and I know it’s potential is out of this world, I would still be considered a small business by a lot.
All of my shop owners are small businesses too and I think that’s what I love most about The Renterie.
