Announcement   Hi, and Welcome to VintageGoodesShop! We are vintage resellers of some really great, unusual, rare and interesting things that we find in our journeys throughout the regional Southeastern portions of the United States. We try, very hard, to be sure that all of our pieces are well described, properly aged (to our ability to figure the age of something out .... sometimes stuff is obviously old but simply too rare to date properly), and in good general shape. We will always be open and up front about the condition of any item we sell.

You may have noticed the picture in our banner? That "shack" that some of you have asked about is in our backyard ... "Bubba's Bait & Tackle" was built years ago and is, in fact, our storage shed. But it sure looks and feels like a piece of history and we thought it would be great to share some of our Georgia down home country feel with y'all!!

We hope you enjoy our shop, and that you make us a favorite of yours! We will keep our listings updated and fresh, so there will always be new things to check out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

About

How VGS began...

I have spent most of my life buried deep (literally!!!) into archeology and research, so its natural for me to be interested in old stuff, and in particular, vintage clothing and cool/odd/unusual things that most people don’t see. I have been scouring the regional South-East to find the greatest things, most of which I’m perfectly happy to keep for myself, but truthfully, space is starting to get to be a premium here. So my tight quarters are your opportunity to grab hold of some of these treasures!

My love of vintage clothing includes occasional alteration of pieces that can use a bit more interest. This led to the development of our COLORS! line, where vintage pieces are lovingly repaired (if needed) and hand-dyed to rich, saturated hues. Color makes me happy! Hopefully they will do the same for others!

While I am new to Etsy, my husband and I have a long and successful history with eBay, so we are very familiar with the on-line sales business concept. You can reference our feedback on eBay, search for “justabassplayer58ki” for our details. My collection of goods is constantly rotating, so keep checking back. Better yet, "Favorite" our shop to see what's new! Thanks for looking!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

All clothing items list measurements in inches, and I am happy to provide additional measurements when requested. Measurements provided are of the GARMENT, not of the person it is meant to fit.
If a garment has a size tag, I will disclose it. Vintage sizes vary GREATLY from modern day sizing and I strongly recommend that you have a tape measure and determine your measurements. It will be invaluable and prevent you from purchasing an item that doesn't fit the way you would like it to. Modern size estimates are based on Anthropologie size charts for women, Banana Republic for men, and various charts for plus size.
You may also wish to compare the measurements of the item to the size chart of a brand whose items fit you well

Care instructions

I do not always list care instructions for my items.

Most vintage dishes should NOT be put in a dishwasher, as it will destroy their finishes.

Vintage clothing care varies greatly depending on the item.
My clothing and linen items are either a) washed in a commercial laundromat, or b) dry cleaned. If I do not have the expertise to clean an item, I will list any issues or concerns in the item details.
If an item came to me with its original tags on it, I will not remove them to launder the item. They may be aired out, and if there are any obvious issues I will note them in the item details.

Home Environment

My home is a non-smoking home, and very pet-friendly. Once cloth items have been laundered, they are placed into plastic clothing bags and stored in lidded bins.

I often do not know the history of items coming to me. Some "vintage" or "thrift store" odors can be pervasive, especially to people with a sensitive sense of smell.

Common smells that vintage sellers encounter may be things like mold, mothballs, smoke, musty basement, animal odors, or plain old "sitting in the attic for 30 years" smells.

Any known odors will be disclosed in a listing, though typically I will not list items that I know to have an issue (unless it is deadstock or very desirable).

Origin of Items

The items in my shop are sourced from a variety of outlets. Wholesale vintage sellers, thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, even other online shops. I rarely get to know about the life my items had before they came to me.

Discounts

I do not offer discounts, but I do run sales on occasion, especially around common holidays. Please keep an eye out for them! If you follow my shop, you will see Shop Updates when I am beginning a sale.

Return Requests

I generally do not accept returns, however, I may consider it under certain conditions as long as a return request is received within 7 days of delivery. Original and return shipping costs are not refunded. Please always feel free to reach out to me with any problems or questions that I may be able to help resolve!
