Rufus – The mud beggar

At first you think you are not sure that he is a real person.  A figment of your imagination, if you will.

Rufus is covered from head to toe in mud.  Now, there are other mud beggars out there, and while they are good at what they do, Rufus is the best!


Rufus by the red house

Here is a great picture of Rufus by the Red House.

Now Rufus will try to sell you a free stick for a dollar or ask you for a hug or a kiss while covered in mud.  He’ll even “stalk” you with some celery or whatever he has on hand.  He is really funny and very clever.

Rufus does perform at other Renaissance Faires too, such as The New Hampshire Faire and some in Maine (sorry, I don’t have more information yet).

We love Rufus at Winslowshire and we hope to see him “stuck” with us next year.

Resa Nelson – Author of Dragonslayer’s Sword

We were so fortunate to have our first author (local one at that) to sell her books (and signed copies too) at Winslowshire!  She is putting out a new book and soon!
She is currently selling her book on her website, and now also at King Richard’s Faire in Carver, MA.  She is a really nice person and I heard that the book is a really good read too.
Author Resa Nelson sold her novel, The Dragonslayer’s Sword, at Winslowshire for the first time this year.  If you didn’t have a chance to meet her (or if there’s someone on your holiday list who likes fantasy novels), check out her special 1-day promotion.  Anyone who buys her novel from on October 13 will get lots of free gifts from Resa.  Go to and look for the link to her special promotion page.
Go now to check out and find The Dragonslayer’s Sword and buy it today!
