Can you recommend one?

What IDE/language are you using?

What sort of web site do you want to build?

I don't have much preference at this point. Mainly HTML at this point.
As to the type of site ... we have customers in a variety industry and their websites provide PRODUCTS and SERVICES, but some of them like to sell their products online eventually.
Since it takes time to create the  home page (that defines the layout and general tone for the entire website), I thought my website designer can save a lot of design time if we can pick (& purchase) and choose among existing templates.

Lots of companies, big one would be TemplateMonster, personally think most of their templates are yuck.
I like ThemeForest - have some very nicely built templates, also have versions for frameworks like WP. And tend to be relatively cheap.

Just get a free web site at someplace like wix.com or weebly.com (or any of the million other ones) and use one of their templates.  Wordpress.com, blogger.com, etc, may work for you too.

If there's something specific you're after, let us know.

I think themeforest is a good choice for html templates as well although you have to look them over pretty good.  Most of the time they make them look pretty specifically for the content you see.  Look for for templates built on a common library like bootstrap or foundation.  Even then I will spend a lot of time fixing up the templates before I use them.

If time is what you really want to save, I am with paulmacd, lool over wix/weebley but add to that squarespace.com.   These are all self hosted all-in-one, do-it-yourself things and very easy to use.
