thefind.pngTheFind, a comparison shopping search engine, has bought a smaller startup called Glimpse, a shopping site targeting women, for an undisclosed amount.

Mountain View-based TheFind, which launched last fall, is trying to deliver better shopping search results to users, featuring the items they most want to buy.

Nextag, Shopzilla and other shopping search engines are already big in this space. But as we’ve noted, TheFind stands out because it is growing and because it doesn’t ask merchants to pay it for top search results. The Find will be Glimpse’s search engine, allowing the latter site to focus on being an online shopping destination.

TheFind just received another $15 million in funding a few weeks ago, from Bain Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Redpoint Ventures.

Glimpse launched in April, with an undisclosed amount of funding from Greylock Partners and Redpoint Ventures.
