Name: Mary Padian
Born: August 24, 1980
Occupation: Entrepreneur, writer and media personality
Mary Padian was born in Dallas, Texas on August 24, 1980. She is the daughter of Teresa Ann Padian and John Gerard Padian, an owner of a scrap metal recycling plant. Her parents filed for divorce when she was just nine years of age.
Mary enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin (UT) and graduated in 2003 with a degree in photojournalism. This helped her land an internship at D Magazine.
Mary is private about her relationship status. It has been suggested for a long time that she is dating a gentleman named Dylan, who appeared on an episode of “Storage Wars.” Reportedly, he is also younger than Mary.
Following her internship at the publication, Mary landed a position as an assistant manager at Architectural Digest. During her tenure at the outlet, Mary found a new interest in furniture, prompting her to produce a series of videos called “Mary’s Finds.”
In 2010, she established a business titled Mary’s Finds, a store that sells refurbished and untouched furniture pieces. Her store was featured on the first season of the hit reality television series “Storage Wars,” which generated considerable buzz for the company, leading to new revenue streams with merchandising, an online store and other moneymaking elements.
On the second season, Mary became a full-time featured cast member and was a recurring character until 2014. She still appears on the spin-off series, “Storage Wars: Texas.” Because she is one of the most popular stars on the series, some reports say that she earns approximately $450,000 per season.
We estimate that Mary Padian’s net worth is $600,000 (2016).
So how much is $600,000 really?
Since Mary Padian owns a Mercedes Benz GS50, $600,000 can purchase you four or five of those vehicles. $600,000 can also open up three more stores bearing the name of Mary’s Finds.
