“The store moved 157 miles away.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I looked up the reviews for African Odyssey, and it was described as a furniture store of African furniture and artifacts made out of railroad ties. I phoned up the establishment, and got an out of service message, meaning they had moved or had forgotten to pay their phone bill. No African Odyssey was listed in the Carmel white pages. And I checked around Ocean Ave and San Carlos Street in Carmel, and could not find any such establishment. There is a web site, www.africanodyssey.com, which lists such an establishment, but listed in Vacaville, some 157 miles from Carmel. Contacting them, I found that they had bought out the Carmel store, which has now been renamed, and has nothing to do with African Odyssey.
