    Back in the days I was buying Wordpress themes on ThemeForest.
    Its been a year now that I cant find anything there and have to make compromises.
    The themes are either fugly or fslow, or more often fboth.

    Where did all the talented designers/programmers go? Are they selling somewhere else? If so, I want to know where. :)

    I came there with the same thought today. But after almost 6 hours of search, here I'm making a silly thread on BHW. :)

    you must have a very high taste for themes having searched such a large database of themes for 6 hours but found nothing. I suggest you custom code your themes. Get a coder

    I'm not that picky actually. For example I like what these guys do: http://themeforest.net/user/solopine simple, elegant and fluff free. However, these guys are an exception, rather than the rule, and unfortunately (for me) they are in the fashion niche.

    Coder is not an option. Actually I'm a coder, and in this case the time to market is more important.

    For what it's worth, I share many of the top sellers on TF. At least you can try them before purchasing, or like most just use and never purchase at all. They are legit though.

    Themeforest. You really can't go wrong with Avada. There's pretty much nothing you can't do with that theme.

    I use Theme Trust and it is the best place to find best WordPress themes.
    It provides good themes and suggestions for the WordPress site. You must have to try it once.

    ThemeForest is for sure one of the biggest theme selling sites around. However, beside it, I had purchased great items from CreativeMarket and MOJO Themes for my clients.

    CreativeMarket is much more friendly to new developers and i think it will attract more of them in the future.
