OK, you are all freaking me out a bit - I've been looking for some retro clip art sites, and just came online to post a question for it - and there it was!
 Shocked

Thanks for reading my mind!

P.S. - For some cool, free retro fonts try www.girlswhowearglasses.com

A site I really like that has great graphics is http://www.digitalvision.com It is a site to purchase graphics of all kinds from, and I really like the Illustrations.  i get a catalog from them every once in a while, and they are GREAT fodder for my decoupage projects and the marble magnets.  If you go there and fill out a request, they will mail you a catalog of images.

not quite retro, but the new york public library has a big, free, online database of images "mostly created before 1923". there are nice drawings of animals and stuff, plus some weird people and good ideas for patterns.

I found this website http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=www.8ung.at/liquid1/clipart/bw/einstein.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.8ung.at/liquid1/clipart/bw/&h=363&w=236&sz=15&tbnid=CC0qfb_jSr0J:&tbnh=116&tbnw=76&prev=/images%3Fq%3Deinstein%26svnum%3D100%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DUTF-8%26safe%3Doff
it has a lot of nifty pictures that I think might help a few of you out.
