History and profile
Founded in 1957 by Babka Publishing Co., Antique Trader was solely an advertising newspaper connecting buyers and sellers of antique and collectible items. In 1972, under the editorial direction of antiques expert Kyle Husfloen, the publication added antique industry and collecting news. It later spun off a book line, including the annual Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide, its 2019 edition being its most recent.
In 1992, Babka Publishing sold Antique Trader and its related entities to Landmark Communications, which, in turn, resold the titles to Krause Publications in 1999. The magazine took on the F+W Media Inc. label after that company obtained Krause in 2002.
As of August 2018, Karen Knapstein is the editor and Corinne Zielke is the publisher. The magazine, which is created in both a print and digital format, is designed by Sandi Carpenter and Timothy Baldwin and Steve Madson manage advertising sales. Antique Trader magazine has a bi-weekly circulation of more than 40,000 readers and more than 5,000 unique daily visitors to its website. Its blog has been rated one of the most widely read on antiques and collectibles.
