Wichita Art and Book Fair

We've been accepted to the Wichita Art and Book Fair after having not participated in it for about 12 years. We just noticed that it only has 40 artists.  Has anyone attended this fair recently?  We are trying to decide if it's worth the 5 hour drive to it. We make lower end jewelry. See More
