    I wouldn't dream of buying Christmas lights which were untested. Years ago there were lots of house fires caused by faulty wiring. Charity shops won't even take brand new lampshades still in the wrapping. So I'm doubtful that it's lawful to sell them. Plus think about how liable you might be, if the worst happened and there was a fire in your customer's house. do you have public liability insurance ? I have, but still wouldn't do it for the sake of what ? £10 ?
