There is a slew of free WordPress themes out there, which is awesome, but I am a big fan of "Premium" themes as well. Design work is worth money and when you pay for something, you have a better shot at getting a higher quality product. I was even considering one of the "Premium News" themes for CSS-Tricks at one point and still think that one is really nice. The creators of that original theme have now rolled it over and expanded it into WooThemes. It is no longer a pay-per-theme but is now a subscription service, starting at 3 months for $150 for a single user subscription. Looks like they have 10 themes right now and they all look great. There will be at least one theme added every month and they even have the fabulous designer Elliot Jay Stocks on board.
