I've looked at a couple other questions about Sprites but most seem to apply to Isometric or RPG related sprites. So I'm wondering if there is a decent place for 2D side scrolling plat-former type sprites?

You can try the free sprites from hasgraphics. They can be used in commercial and non-commercial projects.
Where can I find free sprites and images? is probably your best bet for finding resources.
Try the pokemon clones.
There is massive community dedicated to recreating the pokemon games from scratch and creating brand new games(new world/ diffrent badges).
A lot of people there create sprites (mainly pokemon based), some will help you and in rare occasions I have seen requests.
All they ask is the rightful credit for there work.
As of now I've decided to prototype with some of the stuff from here. Yes I know their rips from commercial games but I don't plan on distribution of any kind with those sprites.
