Where do you get your international flight tickets from? I am starting to look into a vacation to Europe next spring or summer and while I realize that tickets aren't available yet, I was wondering where to start looking when they do become available. When is the best time to buy them, as in how far out, to get the best deals?

I guess I have never planned that far in advanced. I usually get my tickets a couple months in advanced at the most.
I usually start on the internet. Look through travel sites expedia, geocity, travelocity, cheaptickets.com and just see what is out there. A lot of times you can get good package deal which includes hotel, car and flight through most of the companies. I also go to specific carriers. Take a look at both at US carriers and overseas carriers. Such as British Air. Some times they have discounts if you book strait through them.
I usually go with e tickets now-a-days. Just easiest to keep track of.
If you don't want to do the work yourself, you can use a travel agent. They get paid by the companies and carriers they use, not by you. They are quick and easy. Tell them where and when you want to go and let them do the rest.
If you are going to be using Eurorail, Italiarail, Frenchrail etc. you can ether get the tickets online (they mail paper tickets to you) or your travel agent can get them for you.
