For those not in the know, the Sami are an indigenous people of northern Sweden, Finland, and Norway. They have their own language, which is closely related to Finnish. There are many signs in the far north of Sweden which are written in both Swedish and Sami.

Is "clothes are fine" a wrong translation?

Fine can also mean beautiful/nice/pretty. "clothes are fine" should be accepted.

Are vackra and fina interchangeable? Is there a difference in degree or strength of the words?

Then you may get confusion with the Samish people. "Samish" shows up in a lot of place names in that region, too, like Samish Bay, Lake Samish, Samish River.
