Mary Padian is an American businesswoman and reality TV star who is most famous as the owner of ‘Mary’s Finds’, an online store, and for starring in reality show Storage Wars: Texas. Often referred as the ‘Junkyard Queen’ or ‘The Junkster’, Mary is known for her antique collections sourced from different auctions, estate sales, and storage units. After earning a photojournalism degree, she began her career in the famous Architectural Digest magazine under its founder Paige Rense and eventually went on to begin her own section titled ‘Mary Finds’. This section involved videos on home refurbishing and decoration; she later returned to Texas to open her business under the same name and concentrate on furnishing, antiques, and restoration. In the course of running her antiques shop, she was spotted by an A&E Television producer who gave her a chance to appear in the Texas edition of Storage Wars. The show ran for three seasons. As a result of her popularity, she was cast in the original Storage Wars in its fifth season. She has been part of the subsequent seasons of the Storage Wars and has appeared on and off on the reality show all the way up to season 12 so far.
