Just who is Damn Good Vintage?
Damn Good Vintage Clothes, an on-line vintage clothing boutique, is a
family owned and operated business in central Arkansas. I have been
buying and selling vintage clothing on eBay as both The Zaftig Goddess and
Damn Good Vintage and have 1000's of happy customers.

Why do I do this?
Cause I love vintage clothing.
It is nice to combine an interest in vintage clothing into a business you can
be proud of and provide a living that is enjoyable AND helps the planet. I
love vintage and so do you because it is not only fabulous, but GREEN!
Buying vintage allows you to save the earth in style. Wearing and selling
vintage helps us to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Besides my interest in fashion and vintage clothing, my husband and I have
collected mid-century vintage items for years.

The items I select have caught my eye because they are special and
unique....timeless. I love vintage clothing and sewing patterns and enjoy
offering them to others who feel the same, at affordable prices. You can
expect honest accurate descriptions, friendly customer service and fast
shipping from me. I treat you how I want to be treated.

Items are stored in a smoke free home.

returns on any item that is not as described. These items will be issued a
refund of the purchase price (minus shipping cost) or a store credit at the
discretion of you the customer.
And while I do try my best to note all flaws, these are items that are over
50 years old and may have a small pin hole that gets lost in the folds of a
skirt or a stain on the lining which I will probably not mention.

Please be careful when trying on your new garment as a cleaning fee will
be deducted from your refund for anything sent back with perfume and
smoke odors, or any kind of stains.

If you are new to vintage clothes buying, please remember that vintage
clothing is not like new clothing, it is sold "as is", has been worn and/or
stored for many years. I do my best to check items, provide accurate
descriptions and detail any flaws, but please email me with any questions
you have about the condition of the item before buying.

Don't forget to allow an inch or so on all measurements - I measure my
items flat, see my "
How I Measure" page, so if it says 28" waist it would fit
best if your waist measures 27" or less.
For the best fit it is best to measure a similar garment of your own and
compare measurements. If you are unsure or need more info on an item
contact me and ask.
