Great service, and easy to work with LEPO

I can't find the words to express how amazed I am after receiving this beautiful Olivetti M40! It's a gem!! Beautifully preserved and restored by Christian Lepo; writing on it feels natural....my fingers feel like an extension of the keyboard, or the other way around....This is when you feel the Typewriter seems to know your mind and your hands know the machine....and it doesn't happen with all typewriters, believe me. Christian Lepo was extremely prompt to update me on the shipping process and details, within a hour of the purchase; he packed the M40 to the utmost detail, with bubble wrap, extremely carefully, and even added a wonderful gift to the order, which is most helpful for me to start writing seriously. I couldn't be happier and couldn't recommend his shop more!

I received a message from Christian from Lepo Store shortly after placing my order. The type writer that I purchased met my expectations (great quality and description from the website was second to none). Christian was very interactive throughout the process. We received the product within three days and without discrepancies. The item was well packed and showed that extreme care went into the process. Great attention to detail and communication with the vendor. Top notch attention to my purchase and very grateful for the pleasant experience. Best wishes to Christian and Lepo Store.
