anything to be concerned about if buying used?  i am looking at some cheap on craigs list.  If they have been sitting empty for a long time will they still be good?

Plenty to be concerned about.  My biggest concerns would be mold, the kind of humidification device(s) used, and what kind of cigars were stored in it.  Mold can be removed, but I would never purchase a humidor that I knew had mold in it.  I don't use "cigar juice" in any of my humidification devices, so I wouldn't want to have to "freshen" it out of one.  Flavored cigars can permanently taint a humidor and impart the same flavor to any cigar stored in it.  Sitting empty is no big deal, it simply requires a  seasoning (which all new humidors need anyway).
