    1950s-era patterns of what? Clothing? Wallpaper? General retro styles?

FREE - One of the best resources for free and paid retro from the 50's through 70's is Tack-O-Rama. Plenty of clip-art, fonts and tiles for backgrounds

Dover publications are the long-time go-to source for historic imagery in reproducible formats:

Veer also has plenty of stock art collections including patterns:

    I don't believe that any of those are free.

    Ah, I missed the 'free' part--not that the above are expensive.
