- Your Dedicated Van Dyke's Team

Our Heritage


In 1949, returning WWII veteran Bert Van Dyke started a supply company in his basement, offering quality taxidermy supplies to both amateur and professional taxidermists. For decades, Mr. Van Dyke built his empire, creating a major manufacturing facility for creating revolutionary products in wood, foam, chemicals, and glass.

Then Mr. Van Dyke’s daughter had a vision that would forever change the course of the company: while she was trying to restore an antique piece of furniture, she realized how difficult it was to find the right hardware, and she discovered that there was a market for vintage-style furniture restoration supplies. This was how VanDyke’s Restorers was born. By 1984 the company had changed its name, parting ways with its early Taxidermy division to focus instead on providing antique furniture and vintage home restoration supplies, specializing in unusual and hard-to-find pieces.

In 1995, Cabela’s Inc. purchased the company and began investing in it and improving the product line. They added a 150,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility, improved production and distribution processes, and brought the total number of dedicated employees up over 200. Specializing in unusual and hard-to-find products, Van Dyke's experienced technical staff continues to search out vintage, outstanding original hardware pieces to have reproduced by highly skilled artisans from around the world.

Today Van Dyke’s Restorers is proud to be Your Restoration Partner, offering you all the quality products you need to make a house your home.
