I have some vintage old lights that I want to make sure I can use safely. Specifically a "ladder" of elves with mini lights. These elves are I think called Pixies on the packaging. They are 5 of them on the ladder and they have pipe cleaner bodies. These are very special to me and part of my childhood. I'd like to keep them going but some of the bulbs get alarmingly hot and even smoke.

I'm copying your question to Fred Fox, who operate an online vintage Christmas store and may have seen these. It might be nice if we could photos. Just do a "Reply all" and attach a photo or photos if you have them.
