The Allied Arts Guild is hosting “Treasures in the Gardens” today, billed as a neighborhood summer yard sale along with blood drive and docent tour, all in support of  Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.

And there was stuff for sale at flea market-like tables set up in the Sunset Terrace and Patio, plus special offers by the current shop owners and craftspeople. But the real treasures of the Guild are its fascinating collection of original dairy farm buildings (pictured) and those designed in Spanish Colonial style by noted architect Gardner Daily.

Another kind of treasure was being sold by volunteers from the Palo Alto Auxiliary, which from 1932 to 2007, served lunch and tea the Guild Restaurant (now the Red Curant but soon to be Cafe Primavera). Tastes, Tales and Traditions is the auxillary’s award-winning cookbook that showcases popular recipes from its Guild years, along with tales from it 75 year tenure.

More photos of Allied Arts – some of which are high dynamic range photographs – taken by Scott Loftesness are here.
