Yeah take it easy that's why I posted here. If I have to pay that I'd rather pay someone here rather then someone just trying to make money.

Thanks for sharing a picture of these lights. Been a long time since I've seen or thought about them. Very cool, I'd pay what they are asking for them on Ebay.

Might have to next season. The bad part is the bulbs got very hot and melted or discolored them. I'm hoping to swap out the light n wires with led sets.

I looked pretty hard on the Internet for repros on these lights. From Asia/India?? 100 set min it said $5-10 ea. Cheapest I found them was $35 set of 7. I will store in memory and keep an eye out.

String was replaced with one from Xmas light string. So this one is way longer, original string was very short. Replacement bulbs are night light bulbs C3 watch the wattage and no problems with the heat or melting

I remember those! We had a couple of sets that would hang from the trees back in the 80's. Dang, I think I just threw them out not to long ago.

That's why I'm thinking led c5 or whichever fit. The smallest string I can find is 25 lights but I can get ahold of 2 more sets that would give me 21 owls. Maybe I can find just the owls at garage sales next year. Heck I'm thinking even flea markets.

I searched and searched on the internet last night... best I could find was $35-40 used.
I haven't given up...I swear I have seen those somewhere.
