The Green Pocket is a resale/consignment store with a twist. In addition to offering house decor, one can find new and gently used clothing, shoes, purses, and accessories that are geared for ladies and girls (girls size 4 – ladies plus sizes).

Owned and operated by Adrienne Rogers, The Green Pocket is a place where your wardrobe and your wallet will be refreshed and renewed.
Rogers is a native of Martinsville, VA and has lived in Greensboro, N.C. since 1996. She is a wife and a mother of two daughters and one son. She is also graduate of North Carolina A&T State University and has been a member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Greensboro since 1996. She describers herself as a fun-loving, light-hearted individual who believes in living out her dreams. When she is not managing operations at her store, Rogers also serves as a private accountant.

Most typical consignment stores only allow the consignor 60-90 days to have their items sold. Any sale proceeds are issued directly to the consignor in the form of cash or store credit, and any unsold items must be picked up by the consignor at the end of the 60-90 period. However, at The Green Pocket, consignors/suppliers are allowed an indefinite period of time to sell items. In addition, they have the option to have sale proceeds distributed to four organizations of their choice, and on a monthly basis to strengthen fundraising efforts for the community. Items not selected for sale are donated to other charities. The supplier receives a tax statement for all items and funds donated.

Rogers says she enjoys getting to know people and helping them find a great deal. “I get excited when people can leave my store looking and feeling great without busting the budget,” she says. Rogers also provides notary services.
