    I would like to see more Free Bootstrap 3 themes, like BlackTie.co

    Very nice list. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Peter Drinnan says:

    Item #6 is interesting. Most of the Bootstrap templates on Themeforest are so styled you end up tearing them down to the layout level. The 15 templates available from link #6 are basically just layouts. That’s all I need for now.
