A cross between Rodeo Drive and the Salvation Army — an eclectic assortment of collectibles, thrift items, contemporary and antique furniture, jewelry and refurbished mattresses.

That’s how Lloyd Fuller describes Lloyd’s Twice Upon A Time, his new store in the historic Masonic Building at Front and Main streets in Prairie City.

Fuller moved to Prairie City from Port Orford in June after running a similar store there for 7 1/2 years. He said he enjoys the small-town ambiance of Prairie City.

“It’s a little like Mayberry,” he said.

Fuller has been in the secondhand and antique business for about 13 years. He said business at the new store started out slow, but that could be because of all the heat, which dissuaded shoppers.

About half of his customers are visitors passing through, and half are locals, including some repeat customers, he said.

Much of the inventory came with him, but he said he takes consignment items. Refurbished mattresses were a big part of his business in Port Orford, he said, and furniture sells well.

“We’re always looking for good quality furniture,” he said.

Twice Upon A Time is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays or by appointment by calling 406-214-9176.
