So what is House Of 29 you ask? It is a conversation starter, it is the two of us. When starting the business I came up with the slogan " we do not stop until we find your perfect want, YOUR 29.

House of 29, Lifestyle Boutique by Sarah, is a fashion house dedicated to searching for up and coming designers in the fashion market. We have a brick and mortar store and an online boutique. You can also find us @houseof29 via social media. We carefully hand pick and curate a collection of both fine jewelry and fashion jewelry, clothing and accessories from designers who are just about to hit the mainstream.

We are a team comprised of a mother, Arlene, and, daughter Sarah. It has always been a dream of ours to work together each utilizing our strengths and combining our talents to create a small boutique, House of 29, Lifestyle Boutique By Sarah, in our community, Chappaqua, NY. Once we began to see this team become a reality, we realized we wanted to reach beyond and bring our boutique out into the world, hence houseof29.com was born.
Sarah has over 20 years of working in retail (she started working in a local boutique at the age of 12!), specifically in the world of fine jewelry and fashion jewelry.
Arlene has decades of experience in retail as well, working with clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories.
Together, as a family, our worlds intertwined, creating a new vision for a boutique…Fine Jewelry, Fashion Jewelry, Clothing and Accessories. A highly curated shopping experience. A One Stop Shop where you can find your entire ensemble.
We had been talking about opening our own store for years, and, finally we decided to go for it and follow our dreams! After suffering a devastating house fire and loosing everything, our concept of life began to change. We realized we would rather have different, unusual items, unique items, rather than pieces that you would see yourself coming and going in. Following this path that life had taken us on, we translated this into the concept of House of 29, Lifestyle Boutique By Sarah. Thus, House of 29 was established and opened its doors in 2015.
It is definitely a family affair for us at House of 29. We have a family lineage of both a love of fashion and tangible work within the fashion and design industries. Sarah's father, Alan, worked in the fashion district in New York City for over thirty years. And, Big Al often gives his input when buying for House of 29. Her grandfather worked in the fashion district for over sixty years. Both of Sarah's grandmothers were lovers of fashion. Sarah’s husband Gal, using his expertise, built and designed the interior space for the brick and mortar, with its black and white checkerboard floor and vintage red chandeliers.
Empowering women, helping women express themselves through the world of fine jewelry, fashion jewelry, clothing and accessories. Fusing the feel of a small store that you would find in New York City, along with designers from around the globe, we strive to know each and every customer by their first name, know what he or she likes as far as fashion and take a very personalized approach to selling, which is an absolute must. We love styling our customers, knowing their jewelry and clothing wardrobes. Assisting in building your wardrobe is what we do best. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing a customer’s face light up in a piece she has purchased from House of 29.
What is the story behind the name? Shop with us to find out! And, the lips in our logo…Arlene’s mother was a lover of red lipstick, as was Arlene. Both women instilled this passion and love of red lipstick to their daughters and granddaughters. The lips are an ode to Arlene and her own mother and their collective love of fashion. Feel good. Look good. Always feel so good. We are your one stop shop.
We do not stop until we find your perfect want. Your 29.
