Rural Business Owners Credit SDSU Extension Small Business Basics

January 08, 2019 / Lura Roti

Ruth Leines wanted to open her own business. At first the Wagner resident thought it would be a Christian bookstore and coffeeshop. But, a few weeks into SDSU Extension's Small Business Basics she realized this idea may not succeed. So, she did some research and 18 months ago launched This That & More. Home to several vendors and the community's only flower shop, This That & More provides shoppers with everything from antiques, gifts and memorial items to locally built furniture, jewelry, upcycled and handmade items and home decor – most of which is on consignment from 10 local vendors. And, Leines and another vendor offer community classes where participants can pay a fee and with instruction from an expert, create with friends and neighbors.
