Do you mean smiley themes or GTK+ themes? Smiley themes are found around
as they happen to exist, there isn't a central location for them that I
know of (though one could be started on the pidgin wiki). GTK+ themes are
found at various GTK+ theme sites around the internet.

Pidgin smiley themes are changed via the Preferences dialog. GTK+ themes
are changed by a GTK+ theme changer, your Desktop Environment, the GTK+
Theme Selector tool (in Windows), or manually in the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file.

One further note, you do realize that 1.5.0 was released almost
three years ago at this point and is seriously out of date, right?
