New Shop On Woodland’s Main Street Brings Back 1800’s Charm
WOODLAND (CBS13) – The owner of Fat Cat Café is now serving up a new attraction.
She already knows everyone’s name in downtown Woodland, but Edna Bohan is now dishing out a new treat.
From 150-years-old brick to century-old china, a Woodland shop looks to marry old and new.
“It’s Woodland’s newest business on Main Street,” said Edna Bohan, owner of Cup and Saucer.
Edna and Jim Bohan, invested about $40,000 into a unique Main Street, multi-use, mom and pop shop.
“Keeping the old style kind of gives it a personality. So when someone walks into it, they’re not walking into a typical brick and mortar, they’re actually walking into a piece of history. They get to look at some really neat stuff,” said Jim.
It’s a bright, yet cozy, stop where you can sell century-old glassware, buy taste-specific, designer pink china, and locally-made hand soaps.
“We’re going to put a cooking school in the back and call it Woodland Good Eats Cooking School,” said Edna. It’s a name held by one of the original tenants.

“We’re going to have a bridal registry. So a bride could come in and pick her new china, silverware, china, the whole thing.
Prior to the shop’s opening, the property owner paid for a nearly $100,000 restoration, which brought back some of the building’s original detail.
Cup and Saucer is located at 610 Main Street in downtown Woodland. It has already sold $1,000 in merchandise.
