Yes. No glitch, however. I always give my followers odd materials worth little gold. If there is anything with little, no value, or things enchanted and very valuable that you wished or wish to sell for a fair amount of gold but simply cannot carry, I would fast travel to a shop that sells and buys the type of items you wish to sell, take it from the followers inventory and sell it for gold. Adding to your gold, while ridding of access weight from your follower allowing he / she to carry more items of more weight, value, and power. Hopes this helps!
