I've gone down a huge number of rabbit holes in my quest for cool shit to put on my site, so I figured I'd gather as many of my source sites as I can here so that others can find cool shit, too. A lot from my collection, especially the blinkies, come by collecting them off of other people's sites when given permission. Many of them have hyperlinks back to their source if I can find it, so if it's not here, it might be there. Anyway, enjoy this list of visual web knick-knacks.
This page is ever-updating as I continue to go autism mode. Also check out the general resources page.
If you spot a broken link or image, please lemme know on my tumblr or retrospring!

Bunch of old internet gifs! Huge variety. Presented as if it's a shop.
Over 4,000 88x31 buttons, both old and new. Sadly does not link sources.

Buncha nice tiled backgrounds! Most of the ones on my site here are from this page. sadgrl also has a lot of other resources!
Archive.org archived page from Minkle's Realm, who has a huge collection of things from dolls to blinkies to kaoani. Since it's an archive of an old site, not all the images load, but a surprising amount do.
Archive.org archived geocities page of a chinese user's web graphic collection, all meticulously organized. The site isn't in english, duh, but it's not hard to navigate and figure out what's what. Kao, backgrounds, dividers, section buttons, and a whole collection of Hello Kitty graphics on the side!

Website where anyone can upload and archive old internet images, primarily of the glittery gif kind. Unfortunately doesn't ever link back to sources (if there are any remaining, some of the images are absolutely ancient), but it's at least good for ideas.
Some of the stamps in my collection were created by me. Here they are, free to use! No credit/link back needed, but it's appreciated.
And, of course, my site buttons once again.
