Here's How Much Storage Wars' Mary Padian Is Really Worth

One man's trash is another man's treasure. That's essentially the ethos behind A&E's Storage Wars, which follows professional auction hunters who scope out storage lockers after the owner has defaulted on payments. When that happens, the contents of the locker go to auction, and for a relatively low price, these buyers can end up with some truly rare finds. 

While Storage Wars doesn't always depict reality, one thing remains clear — the hunters have plenty of opportunities to strike it rich even outside of their work on the series. One of the most successful treasure hunters to come out of the show is Mary Padian, who got her start on the spin-off series, Storage Wars: Texas, before moving to the flagship series set in California. She's found plenty of weird things over the years, but a lot of that strangeness equals big bucks. With numerous appearances on Storage Wars and Storage Wars: Texas, and her own successful business, it's easy to see why Padian is worth a pretty penny. 

Mary Padian is worth an estimated $600,000

Based on the most recent data available, it would appear as though Mary Padian has a net worth of roughly $600,000. She was part of the main cast of Storage Wars from season 5 until the show ended with season 12, and considering what we've seen other cast members make, it's a relatively safe bet to assume she probably made in the neighborhood of $15,000 per episode; however, appearing on TV isn't her only gig. 

Padian is also the owner of a vintage retail store called Mary's Finds, which is described on the website as having, "an eclectic mix of handmade, vintage & one-of-a kind home goods [Mary Padian has] collected from treasure hunting around Texas." While there used to be a physical storefront of Mary's Finds in Dallas, Texas, it's since gone solely online. You can shop for all kinds of vintage trinkets and collectibles from old-school camera parts to college-themed felt pennants. 

While it doesn't look like Storage Wars season 13 is going to happen (the last episode came out on January 30, 2019), Padian seems to be doing just fine on her own. You can stay in the loop with everything's she up to by following her on Instagram.
