How to get Website Templates for a Ruby on Rails

Hi Guys,

I am a ruby programmer and want to have a crack on building a online
store website (eg.tshirt, pants, etc) using ruby on rails as it will be
a known territory for me rather than learning php, etc.
Anyways, I found heaps of gem like spree which will help me accomplish
what I want to do on the programming side.
However, I am not sure how the design aspect works. I am no designer and
don’t think I would be able to come up with a good designs from scratch.

Do you guys know where I can get good templates for free? In ROR do you
simply get any templates in html and can incorporate that into your
code?
I found heaps of normal html template websites but I am not sure whether
you are meant to use something special for ROR.
Also, what role do CSS Templates have to play in the ROR based website.

Help would really much be appreciated as I am trying to have basic
website layout and design setup so that I can build my application
around it.

Yes.

CSS is essential to any Web development or design work. For use with
Rails, though, check out Sass.
