VIDEO PHOTOS Meet Mary Padian of Storage Wars: Texas Season 2

Mary Padian from Storage Wars Texas

Storage Wars: Texas returns to A&E next month and they’ve brought in two new faces — one of which you already met in Season 1! We introduced you to Jenny Grumbles in an earlier post and now we’ll get you familiar with Mary Padian. Mary has made a living off finding old stuff and making it amazing and has her own store, Mary’s Finds, which is filled with cool and unique items.  In fact, the off-beat cowgirl is so talented, she’s already caught the eye of one of her new co-stars!

Mary Padian and Moe on 'Storage Wars: Texas'Storage Wars: Texas alum Morris “Moe” Prigoff is a regular at Mary’s Finds and Mary is his go-to gal whenever he wants to transform his storage locker finds into something creative. (You might remember Moe visiting Mary during Season 1 – clip below) No one turns trash into treasure like Mary, which makes it fitting that she join the show. Fans are sure to be in for a treat when they get to watch Mary turn people’s abandoned merchandise into great pieces she can sell.

This pint-sized, Dallas native graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2003 with a photojournalism degree. After a brief internship with D Magazine, she moved to New York City where she landed a job at Architectural Digest! During her stint as Assistant Editor at the mag, she created monthly videos which she called.. you guessed it, “Mary’s Finds!” In the videos, Mary would find affordable and unique home pieces, which I’m guessing weren’t from storage auctions.

After spending five years in the Big Apple, Mary was ready to get back to her life and family in Texas. She returned to Dallas and brought her dreams with her. Mary bought some retail space next to her uncle’s law firm, and just six months later, Mary’s Finds was open for business. The rest is history!

Mary Padian's store Mary's Finds

Mary’s Finds is located in the Design District on the border of downtown Dallas. In the store, you can find one-of-a-kind and refurbished furniture, home decor, and vintage clothing at affordable prices. Mary owns and maintains the store all by herself, which makes her quite the busy lady!

But don’t think Mary doesn’t know how to mix business with pleasure because that’s something she does (literally) by hosting “Paintin’ and Drinkin'” events at the store!

Storage Wars: Texas released the following statement about Mary:

“Whether diving in dumpsters or digging through storage units, Mary has an eye for potential. She has been a storeowner for two years. She began her business venture with the mission of turning everyday trash into beautiful furnishings to sell to local interior designers.”

Storage Wars: Texas made its television debut in December of last year to an impressive 4.1 million total viewers and averaged 3.8 million viewers for the remainder of the season. So, season 2 has a good bit of pressure riding on its shoulders!

Mary seems unflustered…

Bidder Mary Padian joins the cast of Storage Wars: Texas Season 2

Follow Mary Padian on Twitter and Facebook. Mary’s Finds also has it’s own Facebook page. To find out more about Mary’s store, check out her official Mary’s Finds website. I will warn you fellers, there is a serious risk of gettin’ smitten! (She uses Banksy graffiti in her logo for goodness sake! Brandi Passante has real reason to be concerned!)

Mark your calendars for August 15th when Mary and the cast of Storage Wars: Texas make their season 2 debut!

  • I don’t feel bidding on a person is legal or right unless the money collected goes to a worthy charity…in that case, my pockets have no bottom if I had that chance to bid for Ms Mary….

  • burnoutdontfadeaway

    What a firecracker!!! My kind of girl, my kind of interests, and imagination. If you are ever in B.C. Canada, let me take you to the auction and maybe the pub.

  • Mary is a CUTIE !!!…Love her laugh..

  • Evert

  • Rod

    Mary is not just a re-purpose retailer, she is a life stylist and an artist who will one day be much more appreciated than she currently is! I love her vision.

  • Mary is a cutey. I have met a few souls like her in my life–they are real keepers. If you get an idea for a project she will help you finish it like a true buddy. I only watch this show because of her. Wish I could clone the girl here in Idaho, she would fit in huge here. Anyway , she is adorable and man worthy, a rare combo these days!

  • Margaret Rodriguez

    I have no idea which Mary you all are watching. She is absolutely annoying! Goofy has a sexier laugh than her. They should have left Lesa and Jerry on the show, at least they entertained! Mary acts like a doofus with a brain the size of a pea. I’ve read the bio, apparently she does have some sort of intelligence but on the show she does not act it at all. And before you all start the typical comments, this is not jealousy, I can admit that she is pretty, not supermodel gorgeous, but pretty however, I could never imagine anyone being attracted to her because of her laugh and the way she keeps her mouth open and jaw hanging down after said annoying laugh.

    • Tiki

      Totally agree she is a

    • kcimsan

      @Margret – You are in the .1 percentile as corroborated by the 99.9% of other postings! I have no idea ‘what’ (sic) Mary you are watching! She is cute as a bug, delightful, sharp as can be, (you do realize she wrote an article for Architectural Digest), sweet, super talented, her laugh is to die for, but most of all, she is genuine! WHICH MARY ARE YOU WATCHING?

    • fiscusd

      Yeah, once again jealous women disagree with men about who is cute,,,what a laugh,

  • Roland Jenkins

    Mary is cutier than a pair of bugs boots!

  • Paul

    Im in England and watch storage wars for sweet Mary! Her laugh,smile and accent knocks me out.if you ever come to the uk id love to show you around.

  • Hopeful Oklahoman

    I would truly love to meet her. I somewhat hesitate to say that as I don’t want to appear to be some sort of weirdo. The moment I saw her I was hooked. I think she is wonderful. I live in Tulsa Oklahoma which is not too far from Dallas. I have family that lives in Dallas. Mary, I am a single hard working not bad looking guy in good shape. I would love to meet you someday. I just know we would be perfect for each other. BUT, the only way I would come to Dallas to meet you is if you were to invite me. I have four sisters and spent my whole life telling them to be careful of how and who they meet. So, if you can think of a way where you would feel safe meeting me, please please let me know. As I read this I realize it probably looks creepy. But whats a guy to do if he thinks he has found his possible partner in life right? lol 918-829-0215. Crossing my fingers. If not, keep smiling and laughing. It seems to make a lot of people smile as well.

  • rico gotti

  • Mike DeJulio

    I wouldn’t mind kissing Mary Padian.
